This bike is over $1,100 new. It is barely used and dry stored always. Like NEW! Upgraded seat! Motobecane Cafe Express 8. For male riders around 6 feet tall. I purchased this brand new 10 years ago from Bikes Direct. Barely used & like brand new. This exact bike is selling new for over one thousand dollars per online search. If you can find one! Additions include an upgraded spring-cushioned seat for comfort & odometer as pictured. Ridden approximately a total of 50 miles overall. Barely used. Lost interest. On rare occasions during dry fair-weather, rode around the block one or twice. Showroom condition! A real gem! Always stored in bone dry clean Amish shed. Faster than a Hybrid or Comfort bike, more comfy than a Road Bike! What is it? It's a Cafe Bike!! Cafe bikes are road bikes with flat bars and adjustable stems so you can ride with more comfort and control than a regular road bike and far greater speed than a hybrid or comfort bike.

The Motobecane Cafe Express8 features a lightweight handcrafted Aluminum frame and resilient triple-butted CrMo Fork. Led pedals for night riding that work off pedal power to 'flash'. Very cool! The real star of the show is the innovative Shimano Nexus Internal 8 speed hub. This allows the rider to change gears at any time - even when at a standstill. Internal gears means lower maintenance and less stuff to get snagged. Smooth riding, superior shifting and comfort.
